Hello everyone,

I was using a laptop and I broke it, so I decided to build a PC. I want a PC with Ryzen 5 2600, GTX 1660, B450 mainboard, 16 GB 3000mhz RAM, 1x256 GB M.2 SSD, 1x2.5 5400RPM 1 TB HDD, 3 fan case fan. When I use PSU calculation sites, usually they say 500W would be enough but some people on the internet says that I need 600W at least. I don't think any further upgrade or OC. What I want from you to recommend me a PSU with enough wattage around 70-80 $.

Depends on your country as some areas don't have many options and other areas have many options.
I'm living in Turkey, I can find most of the popular brands (like Corsair, Cooler Master, FSP, Evga, Sharkoon, SeaSonic etc.) easily except some models.

A quality 550w is enough, for that build. This one is stupid overkill, but for the price, it's hard to ignore.

Alright, can you afford this https://www.newegg.com/global/tr-en/seasonic-focus-plus-550-gold-ssr-550fx-550w/p/N82E16817151189 if not let me know your budget in your currency.
I figured that prices more 20% than US prices, so this is pushing my budget. We can say that I can afford 70 $ or 500 TL (Turkish Liras). Corsair CX550, CX550, SeaSonic S12II, FSP Hyper K 600, FSP M85+ are in my budget in here. Also I'm wondering, many people using Corsair VS550, but some says it is a garbage, if I buy something like VS550, will it be harmful for my system? Can I use it for 1 or 2 years without damage?
